When you are injured in an accident, insurance typically pays for related medical expenses and other economic damages. If you have a deductible, you will need to satisfy that agreement before collecting compensation. Your settlement will only be as large as your policy allows.
Does Insurance Pay for Everything?
Insurance settlements typically cover medical expenses, property damage, and anything else listed in the policy. They may not be significant enough to cover all of your damages and they almost never include compensation for pain and suffering.
Remember: Insurance companies are for-profit corporations with boards-of-directors and stakeholders who demand increases. It is not profitable to pay large settlements. Over the past several years, insurance companies have shown a willingness to cheat policy holders out of fair settlements in an effort to increase profits. If you are not being treated fairly by your insurance company, Leventhal Sar is here to help. Call today to learn how.
Who Pays When Someone Else is at Fault?
When you are injured in an accident caused by someone else, that person’s insurance company can be held liable for damages. These might be capped by the policy holder’s limits and there is never a guarantee that someone else’s insurance company will treat you fairly. This is one of the primary reasons to have an accident lawyer on your side as soon as you are injured.
There are ways to seek damages beyond a policy’s limit, but they require legal action. The best way to work towards proper compensation is with legal assistance. Sean Leventhal and Jonathan Sar are here to review your case free of charge and help you determine what your injury is really worth.
